Seamus Coleman silences critics with superb strike as Everton beat Brighton

Everton manager Marco Silva is still searching for the right blend upfront as he looks to recover from last week's defeat to Manchester United. "I thought we controlled most of the game".

It was a good performance from Richarlison - who was awarded the man-of-the-match award - and Silva was pleased with his contribution.

Coleman put in an impressive display in Saturday's contest at Goodison Park, and capped off his performance with a well-taken goal five minutes into the second half - his first for Everton since January 2017.

"Then it's the teams that are outside of that and I have always seen Everton as the seventh team, even though you have got Leicester who have been very good and we all know what they did a couple of seasons ago". Only one of those goals has come on the road, however. More importantly, though, was that Silva said that he wants Evertonians to have a real connection with what the team are trying to achieve. It was our best performance at home this season. In the first matches he scored three times as a winger yes, but after, he had games as a winger and didn't score. "It is important, not just for him, but for all of our strikers and forwards, that they can score, but it is also important to have confidence", he said.

The lefty has a career ERA of 3.74 over five seasons with the Detroit Tigers and Tampa Bay Rays. Hamels and his agent, John Boggs, have said they would be open to exploring a longer-term deal.

Richarlison scored twice as Everton overcame Brighton to secure their third win in four Premier League matches.

However, the former Barcelona centre-half appears unlikely to play against Brighton today, meaning Mina will have to wait for next weekend's match against Chelsea to make his Premier League debut. While Brighton have played well lately, they have not played well in their away games.

Chris Hughton's side will be more confident of their capabilities on the road now and they did have back-to-back away wins around this time previous year, but it looks hard for them to bottle up Everton or match them on the scoring front.

Seven of their 10 games under Silva have gone over 2.5 goals and all of them have had at least two goals.
